New Paleo Recipe

Sometimes when I'm messing around the kitchen I will throw some miscellaneous stuff together for a breakfast casserole. Sometimes it's a hit, sometimes it's a miss. Today...I had a hit!

Preheat oven to 400

1/2 sweet potato cut into small cubes
4 mini sweet peppers cut into thin ringlets
handful of whole mushrooms cut in half
1 cup coarse chopped parsley
3 handfuls of fresh spinach..or more if you want!
1 pound sugar free sausage
10 eggs beaten
Coconut oil

Melt coconut oil in skillet until hot and add sweet potato. Cook to soften it up some, salt and pepper if you like. Add in the peppers and mushrooms and cook them to soften a tad too. Then add parsley and spinach. I added my spinach a handful at a time and mixed it up gradually. It takes over your skillet! BUT it will wilt down. Pour all of that into a 9x13 baking this before you spinach is wilted down to look like canned Popeye spinach. You just want to cook it down some. I added a smidge more fresh spinach after I poured the mixture into the baking dish, then I just mixed it all together and let the heat shrink it down.

Using the same skillet, cook your sausage until done and put that on top of your mixture in the baking dish. Beat your 10 eggs, add some salt and pepper if you wish, and pour over your delicious concoction. Throw it in the oven, or set it nicely if you want less mess, for 30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Voila! Lots of veggies, protein, fat! Eat with some sliced avocado...YUM!
